Run the Jewels burned up the first-ever Panorama festival in New York City on Sunday evening, with Brooklyn producer/rapper El-P and Atlanta veteran Killer Mike offering their always-on-point social commentary between songs like "Blockbuster Night, Part 1," "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)," "Banana Clipper," "All Due Respect" and "Crown."

Whether you were there or not, we've collected nine remarks that'll double as perfect Instagram captions for your wokest posts during this fraught time in American history. (PSA: speak the eff out, people.)

"Raise your hand if you know we're gonna take this fuckin world back." –El-P

"Film the police. Always film the police." –Killer Mike

"I think we know at this point that when they say that they care about you, that when they say that they'll fight for you, that when they say that they have your best interests in mind, you can translate that no matter what language you're in, pretty easily. What they're really saying is lie, cheat, steal, kill, win, c'mon, everybody doing it." –El-P before "Lie, Cheat, Steal"

"You already free." –Killer Mike

"Take care of your fellow motherfucking citizens." –Killer Mike

"We give a fuck what happens to our family." –El-P after saying making the fist-and-gun symbol "means you're part of the Run the Jewels family"

"Give a fuck about people who don't look like us." –Killer Mike

"You gotta let that bullshit go, New York. You gotta let fuck shit go." –Killer Mike

"May as well say it now. Get it out while you can, kids." –El-P during a combo of "Bernie, Bernie!"/"fuck Trump!" chants
